Built by the monks in the 12th Century and inhabited by them until the 17th Century, the architectural periodic changes, both inside and out, are visible and intriguing. The second tower, the vertical splitting of the 1st floor to provide a 2nd floor with additional bedrooms were all carried out by the monks. The painted wall in the upper rooms dates back to the Monks time at the Priory.
The current owners family redecorated and improved where necessary whilst keeping the "soul" of this impressive historic building intact. The vaulted tuffeau stone guest lounge, the enormous salon (with it's massive oak beams), dining hall and fitted kitchen, hallway and twin stairs create the layout of the ground floor with leaded light windows with internal and external period shutters, all work in offering a relaxing and welcoming environment. The first floor has 4 en-suite guest bedrooms which all enjoy park views, character beams and tiled floors. The owners twin bedroom and private bathroom are access by the "newer" tower.
